Title: MICROFLUIDICS FOR ANALYTE DETECTION BASED ON THE LIGHT TO HEAT CONVERSION PROPERTIES OF METAL NANOPARTICLES
Abstract:
The present invention refers to the in vitro use of a microfluidic kit or device comprising a support or substrate, wherein said support or substrate comprises at least one channel in the substrate, the channel comprising an inlet, an outlet, and a flow-path connecting the inlet and outlet, wherein the inlet and outlet together define a midplane; and a portion of the flowpath travels transversely across the midplane, wherein the portion of the flowpath that travels transversely across the midplane includes a recognition site or sensing area for detecting a target analyte; for detecting an analyte as a result of the heat generated by metal nanoparticles when they are irradiated with an external light source.
